+-Appointments

Appointments

After the student has dropped by for Quick Questions it can be assessed whether or not they should have a private appointment scheduled for them.

Appointment scheduling is centralized through the Career Development Center Department Assistant, who can be reached at (714) 997-6942. Initial appointments are scheduled for 60 minutes to allow adequate time to explore the student’s needs. When making an appointment, students are asked about the nature of the appointment in order to match them with a staff person who can best assist them.
